I’ve just about got my head around these darker evenings but that doesn’t mean I have my head around the fact its NOVEMBER. This year has just been a whirlwind and I think the majority of people would have to agree. Anyways, October was no exception, hence why I have fewer favourites, it was a busy month…
Obviously walking your dog is just one of those everyday tasks that has to be done. But throughout October, I really appreciated the fresh air. Usually by this time of year the weather has turned much colder and the chances of walking your dog in the rain has tripled. However, this year that’s not really been the case (this last week has made up for the rain though). I’ve just loved getting out for an hour, almost enjoyed it as much as Alfie has and we’ve met the loveliest old lady who lives the opposite side of the village. Halfway through our walk, we end up crossing paths with her and her dog and we just have a little chat.
I am spending a lot more time in the car recently. It can’t be helped, with traffic on the roads it usually takes me 45 minutes to get to uni. However, one thing that passes the time apart from the obvious full concentration on the roads has been BBC Radio 1. I love that you don’t have to listen to adverts, the music they play is usually quite good (I am there for the 9 am 10 minute takeover) and I find when the presenters do talk, its fairly interesting.
How could I miss out on mentioning Halloween? I was kind of gutted I didn’t post on the 31st, like I usually do (2017, 2016, 2015). But I’d had such a long day at uni and the amount of trick or treaters we had, I actually didn’t get to sit down for very long. It was so surprising, in the old house we had a few people come to the door but it was never too many. This year, now living in a small village, I thought we’d be lucky to get one, clearly there’s a lot of kids in the village. My mum had bought 6 bags of sweets and at the end of the night we had maybe a handful left. Anyways, it ended up being surprisingly fun.
Is it too early to start Christmas shopping? I feel that once Halloween and bonfire night is out the way then its totally acceptable. Although this year I definitely had a few Christmas presents before Halloween and I’m okay about it. Christmas is one of the best times of the year and I love being able to get presents for my parents. I suppose I’m making life easier for myself by the time December rolls around and I’ll have just about finished Christmas shopping. We love an organised gal.
I’m about to totally contradict myself now. In September, I posted ‘Why I didn’t like my First day at University‘ , which now seems a bit like clickbait. However, a lot has gone on since then; meetings have taken place, the course has been adjusted and strong friendships have been formed. I’m not saying I’m suddenly 100% in love with the course because that’s not the case. But the friends I’ve made are making it worthwhile and the course isn’t all bad. This was a picture of me with my finished shirt, not the best but it had just been an introduction to screen printing. So I guess you could say friends at uni are my last October fave.
Did you have a particular favourite throughout October?
Lots of Love,
